7--1-W -i-'W -- '- I l l PAGE Build Not for Today. By Howard Irvin. To build is to erect or construct anything' upon some foundation. When a man contemplates build- ing a house he first lays his plans before a master- mechanic. Then after selecting a site, the foun- dations are laid firm and solid, and upon these he may build his home, and entertain no fears as to his structure giving away. So it is with ns, we must have some occupation in view which we should like to pursue when we are thrown out upon ,the world to live upon our own resources and efforts. 'l' il' it The principal factors in the construction of a solid foundation for a successful career, are Char- acter, Education and Application. First, let us be- gin with Character, since it is the most important quality that is needed to finish out a successful life. For, as one writer has said, 'lCharacter is what we are, and reputation what others think we are." il if il' It has been proven over and over again, not only that"Honesty is the best policy," but, that in order to be a success in any one thing, we mrtst be honest and apply diligently and with all sincerity the splendid philosophy of the "Royal Law of Lovell! -lf it' Habit is another thing which determines much in a man's character. Bad habits lower the stand- ard of manhood, and if they are continued too long, they will leaye a stain, which neither time nor good works can entirely efface. In building not alone for today, another thing which exerts a powerful influence over ns for good or evil, is the associates we have around us. 'l' 'l' Therefore let our associates be such that their influence will have a tendency to inspire usto high- er and nobler aims in life. il' il' li We know notwhat lies before us. Let us remem- ber that the acorn, which we unconsciously trample under foot, with its dull and rough exterior, seem- ingly worthless, yet when Nature has asserted her power and has touched the seat of life within that rough exterior, there is a budding forth of new life which grows, and grows, and grows until it becomes a strong and mighty king of the forest. So it is withour characters,as we pass along lifels path- way. There are many things that will come to ns which will seem to be immaterial for the building up of our characters, yet in after years they will become most important in the directing' and shap- ing' of a successful life. il il' il' We would not minimize a good, strong, practi- cal education, Webster defines education thus: "Education trains the mental powers, enlightens the understanding, forms and regulates the princi- ples of a man, tits him for any business, or activity and usefulness in life." Such being the case, we should all strive to secure as thorough an education as our circum- stances, in life, will permit. Y il' 'l' To succeed in any business, it is absolutely necessary that we are schooled thoroly in the work which we intend to follow. 'l' 4 f Earnest application is the next important factor 15 in this great structure of life. XVe must apply ourselves faithfully to our work and as surely as we do, Success is bound to meet us on the way. " tl' Perseverance is another essential quality in the developement of character. it ii' 4 What a splendid lesson in perseverance we may learn from the lines, 'llf you donlt at first succeed, try. try again." if il' 'F Huild not for todayg we should build such a structure that it will stand thru eternityg one that will stand the storms and tempests of Timeg one that will shine out upon the world and be a beacon light to those who may see and be encouraged to seek a firm foundation. il it il' ' How beautifully the poet has expressed it when he says: "So livc. that- nhen Lhy summons comes to join the innumer- able caravan. which moves 'llo that tnystt-rious rt-alms where each shall bake llis t'lnnmbt:r in the silent halls of tltfatll.

PAGE 14 Monuments More Endu1ing'Than Marble. By Edythe Jordan. A monument may stand for a deed, an event in history ora life. The'monument made of marble wonderfully constructed and perfect in every detail may excite one's love of beauty. These are made to show in a feeble way our love and respect for the brave deed done, and the noble life livedg for we wish to have those who come after us understand a little of their true worth, as we knew it. There have been sculptors or men of genius, power, and influence in many lines. Alexander the Great conquered the world as it was then known, Hannibal the Carthaginian who made all Rome bow at his feetgand Napoleon, that mighty soldier who held France and a great part of the world at his command. These men were great in their achievements of military power alonefl' if 'F Their memorials do not possess many of the finer touches, for theirs might be called the strong, bold curves in the marble. Martin Luther, john Knox and john Wesley have left us memorials of their livesg we can only understand in part their great self-sacrifices, theirs are the rounded curves of enduring faith. Such men as Shakespeare, with his great sym- pathy and understanding of all classes of men, Mil- ton, with his beautiful Puritanic faith portrayed in his immortal Paradise Lost, and that great host of poets who lift men up away from their everyday lives, and help them to see more of God. Numberless are the sculptors working on the great problems of life. Each one has his own shareg some to strengthen, some to beautify, some to lift up, some to inspire, some to lead others to follow in the great plan of life. it if it Monuments once made can never be changed. We are, each one, given one great, pure white slab of marble on which to chisel out our destiny. We must live our lives as they are given us, and live them in every sense of the word. We must be truly alive to every chance we have to live the purest and sweetest life possible. To have our lives last and endure, we must each practice our ideals of right, for enduring qualities cannot be made in one bold victory on the battle- field, or in one great sacrifice at the time ofa crisis. To endure, means to be able to do the right and noble thing just the same when one knows that he will not be applauded by his friends, as when he knows he will win the praise of all.'k W' 4' Thus, to cultivate enduring characters, we must live each day our very best whether it be a beautiful, sunshine,joyous one, or a day cloudy and dismal with perplexities. Q Class Song. By Florence Tenney and Mildred Stebbins. Tune--"Come With Thy Lute." Dear comrades, all, we must leave you, Though we can never forget you, And days so happy and free. But we press unto the morrow, Mingled with joy and with sorrow. Long shall our memory last Of our old school days now past. Those jolly days we will treasure, In which we knew so much pleasure, Tho' they passed swiftly away. Ties that no changes can sever, Linked to our heart-strings will ever Bind us, while memory shall last, To our dear school days now past. Our tasks are done and we're grieving, These dear old halls to be leaving. But we are cheered with the hope That from the past we can borrow Courage and strength from the morrow Long shall the memories last Of dear school days forever past.

F i PAGE l11DI'1'Ol2IAI,S. ANNUAL BOARD. HOWARD IRVIN, Editor in Chief. EDYTHE JORDAN, Local Editor. FLORENCE TENNEY, Secretary. HARRY ABY, Business Manager. Hu WALTER EDIS, Assistant Business Manager. In the publishing of this paper which we have given the name, The Creston High School Annual, we have tried to establish a custom which we hope will be followed by each succeed- ing class. As this is our first attempt at journalism, we ask of you to overlook our many mistakes and short-comings, for we are young and inex- perienced with the work of a journalist. One glance at the contents of this book will perhaps give you some idea of what we are do- ingin this our High School. As editors and publishers, we earnestly sol- icit your help and patronage in the future. In behalf of the class of 1908 we wish to thank the business and professional men for re- sponding so readily when our business manager called on them for their advertisements and financial aid, which has made it possible for us to put out this Annual. It has been our aim not only to make this a High School Annual, but also a business di- rectory of the village of Creston. We are proud to say that Creston is one of the best towns in the country, especially, since Wooster, Seville, Sterling and Burbank have been annexed as suburbs. We boast of the fact that we have-sixteen passenger trains go thru our town daily, and that every twenty-four hours thirty-eight pass- enger coaches and four baggage cars pass thru Creston on the electric line, and are operated by the finest crews in the State of Ohio. One of the main things which make Cres- ton the best little town in Ohio, is her wide- awake, energetic, upright business men. We wish also to state that she is noted for her hospitable and talented ladies. Also, we do not feel embarrassed when we state that no f 16 town of its size can boast of as many good look- ing young ladies as Creston. As the world grows older the need of an education grows more necessary and our High School, tho not as fine in appearance as some, is trying to fit those who enter its doors with knowledge which will be of use to them in their after business life. We have a corps of teachers-the best that could be procured-and they give to us day by day the results of their study and experience, and try to impress upon our minds the fact that we are in this world to learn and to do some- thing which will not only be a help to us, but to others as well. We sincerely hope that next year when the "Wise" Juniors make their exit and solicit for ads.that all the business men will respond cheer- fully to their wail and harangue. We think we can almost hear them tip-toeing along the Main streets of Creston, as the American Indian used to do when he was getting ready to get the scalp of his next door neighbor. But as a word of caution to the business public of Creston, do not be alarmed at all, but keep quiet and stand your ground while they open fire, for it will con- sist mostly of noise and hot air, resembling in sound the going off of a penny bunch of fire- crackers on the Fourth of Julv. So please drop your money and ad. into their outstretched phalanges and help the poor creatures to reach the goal for which they have been striving, since they have left their mothers' knees. The public will please excuse the editor and his stai from entering into the scientific topics of the day and discuss them from a business, a professional or a literary stand point of view. For if we had undertaken the discussion of any of those topics in a business, a scientiiic, or a literary way, we might have become enshrouded so deeply in thot and make such a comprehen- sive declaration of facts, that there'Would be nothing left for our successors, the Subordinate Juniors, to Write about except love stories or courtship subjects on which our Junior boys no doubt can give ia complete description from the many experiences which they have had during the past year. As we go to press we feel sorry that this closes our High School life, a life that has been fraught with so many pleasures and memories that will last we hope 'till we are summoned to meet our Maker.
